Did you know that a clogged dryer vent not only means your clothes will take too long to dry, but it’s costing you money? At a rate of $0.15 per kWh, every 40 minute drying cycle of a 5000 watt dryer costs $0.50! The lint that accumulates in the ventilation system not only reduces your dryer’s efficiency, but is also highly combustible. A clogged dryer vent costs you money in energy efficiency and is a serious fire hazard. Our dryer vent cleaning service is a cost effective way to eliminate the unnecessary expense of extended drying times and keep your family safe from the risk of fire.
There is some disagreement within the industry about the best method for cleaning air ducts. The two schools of thought are the “negative air” approach and the rotary brush and vacuum approach. We believe that both air duct cleaning methods can achieve great results in most situations when performed properly by competent technicians. However, our focus has always been on high quality residential service. The type of residential duct work commonly used in homes in the South poses unique challenges to duct cleaners because it is soft, flexible, and does not go in straight lines. Firms using the negative air approach are especially challenged by this type of duct work, as that process was originally designed to work well on the rigid metal duct work commonly found in the North and in large commercial buildings. The tools used to agitate the duct work in negative air cleaning are very difficult to get all the way into your duct work and can damage the lining of the ducts we find in most residences in the greater Jacksonville area.
Ensuring your air ducts are clean is one of the most simple ways to keep a clean house and healthy body. Since dust and other contaniments pass through your air ducts five to seven times a day, they can contribute to different health problems. You may notice the most common problems include eye and nose irritation, coughing, asthma, and especially allergic reactions. The sooner you have your air ducts cleaned, the sooner you can breathe easy. It’s important to note that when air ducts are being cleaned, all components of the system should be completely inspected and cleaned, including cooling coils, fans, heat exchangers, registers, grilles, diffusers, and air ducts.
Nowadays most homes have a central air system with connecting air ducting to move conditioned indoor air throughout the home. Over time, the air system and the connecting air ducting will accumulate dust and other contaminates, which can cause circulation of dirty and polluted indoor air through your home. Out-of-sight and out-of-mind health items that we don’t think much about are dirty air system and air ducts which could be the unhealthiest item in our home.

"So My A.C. suddenly went belly up and I needed a total brand new unit inside and out. So a little background on myself. I'm an engineer, so I know a little bit about A.C. and how they work. I'm by no means an expert, but it does allow me to detect if the A.C. guy knows his stuff, especially if they don't know what I do. 😉 And I'm happy to say, these guys do. One of the things that helped me chose them is that they brought up the importance of controlling humidity. None of the other contractors I spoke to, mentioned that. I also appreciate the fact that he didn't try to "up sell" me and get me to buy things I didn't need. He was on time, honest and forth coming about what I needed and what I didn't. When the workers came, they were on time, very professional and very CLEAN. After they left, I couldn't tell they had been there. Highly recommended this service."
